Tractor pulling trailer of carrots crashes into home

The tractor left a gaping hole in the side of the property in Wilburton, Cambs., and carrots strewn across the road.

Neighbours heard an ”almighty bang” and looked out to see carrots and bricks strewn across the road with the Massey Ferguson embedded in the wall.

The owners of the property, who were not home at the time of the accident, were too upset to comment while the tractor driver escaped with minor injuries.

A neighbour, who asked not to be named, revealed that the house is too badly damaged to be saved.

He said: ”It’s such a shame – I don’t think there’s going to be any way of saving the property.

”I couldn’t believe it – I just came out my front door and saw all the commotion.”

Another neighbour added: ”I was in the kitchen when I heard an almighty bang.

”It was very loud. I then looked out the window and saw the tractor embedded in the wall and I couldn’t believe what I saw.”

Following the accident, which occurred at 8.40am on Monday, police closed the road while debris from the house and the pile of carrots was cleared.

Pc Jane Allen said: ”We believe something caused the tractor driver suddenly brake and as a result the tractor and trailer jackknifed.’
